The 2014 Boston Marathon is being run today. This longstanding tradition in the running world is even more significant to its participants this year, in light of last year’s bombing of the event. A number of people from mid-Michigan are participating, and Current State's Melissa Benmark catches up with one of them.

Lansing native Elizabeth Demers says this year, after the bombing, there was a swell of support for the people of Boston, which made qualifying for the marathon more difficult because of more competitive requirements.
